About us

Academic Alpha AG stands for investment and company success (Alpha) based on scientific research (Academic).

Three values shape our daily work:


Through constant interaction within the team, with our customers, and leading researchers of various disciplines, we recognize new topics and trends at an early stage. We consistently take account of them when providing our consulting services.


Our approaches and models follow a comprehensible pattern giuded by scientific principles.


As a result of constantly questioning the status quo and gaining new perspectives, we achieve genuine added value for our customers.
